NC Rural Center’s Faith in Rural Communities Initiative helps churches to create high-impact projects that will benefit both the economic and social well-being of their communities. 

The NC Rural Center is hitting the road to listen to rural, United Methodist ministers and church leaders share about their needs related to missional engagement and strengthening community ministries outside the church walls.

What resources would be beneficial to you and your congregation?  What obstacles do you face building community ministries? What does economic development mean to your faith community? Small groups of 10 – 15 ministers will join a round table discussion on these topics on the following dates, with refreshments provided:
